I've actually seen this here as well... but thought it was just something weird with my setup or machine since there were no other bug reports. ;) 

If anyone has any ideas on tracking this down, please do chime in.

Comment 3 Jan ONDREJ 2012-04-14 11:25:16 UTC
There is more in logs today it died:

Apr 13 20:40:21 ns spamd[28009]: prefork: child states: BIIBBI
Apr 13 20:40:21 ns spamd[28009]: prefork: adjust: 3 idle children more than 2 maximum idle children. Decreasing spamd children: 28526 killed.
Apr 13 20:40:21 ns spamd[28009]: spamd: handled cleanup of child pid [28526] due to SIGCHLD: interrupted, signal 2 (0002)
Apr 13 20:40:21 ns spamd[28009]: prefork: child states: BIIBB
Apr 13 20:40:21 ns spamd[28009]: prefork: child states: IIIBB
Apr 13 20:40:21 ns spamd[28009]: prefork: adjust: 3 idle children more than 2 maximum idle children. Decreasing spamd children: 28523 killed.
Apr 13 20:40:21 ns spamd[28009]: spamd: handled cleanup of child pid [28523] due to SIGCHLD: interrupted, signal 2 (0002)

And here is my workaround, which will restart spamd after this problem:

[root@ns ~]# cat /etc/systemd/system/spamassassin.service
.include /lib/systemd/system/spamassassin.service
[Service]
#LimitNOFILE=8192
Restart=always
[root@ns ~]# 

Please, consider adding Restart=always to default init script.
